Property Description

Hostel Vista Serena is the first hostel in Manuel Antonio designed for young people. We are recommended by the Lonely Planet guide and the Hostelling International. Set on a mountain, surrounded by jungle, with awesome views of the Pacific Ocean, the hostel is the perfect place to experience the peace of paradise and the thrill of local attractions.

Our hostel is specially designed for foreign visitors. You get the rainforest and Costa Rica's most beautiful beach, and still have all of the comforts of home.

We run a small, secluded hostel, and offer personalized services to our guests. Our goal is to cater to the individual - with a little Costa Rican touch!

    Amazing views, serene and quiet place perfect for some relaxation. Just outside of the main tourist area but a quick easy walk to the bus stop with a market and restaurants close by, and a 5 min bus ride to the beach. Free breakfast is just coffee and toast but still appreciated. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They work hard to keep it clean; only downside is there are a lot of bugs, maybe just due to the location. Also guests were slacking on keeping the communal kitchen clean.

    Very nice staff!! Beautiful location!! Felt very safe while there. Being outside there were a lot of bugs around which I don’t personally like. Other than that though was a good stay for a cheap price.

    I’m sorry, it’s just not worth the price. Rooms are tiny with really old uncomfortable mattresses. There’s barely any toilets and showers and you end up waiting half a hour in line in the morning, not to mention they are super dirty. There is really nice view and porch, breakfast is a joke, it’s just margarine bread and coffee, you’ll still have to buy more food. Walking from the hostel to the city is really dangerous, the first part is without sidewalk in a road bent. Sassy is fantastic
